This picture will always be a reminder for me. I had to use the jar of money to to get by the last couple of days. This has been a journey within a journey. For the last two years I’ve put myself out there not knowing the end result. I was told by a “VOICE” to write a book, do a radio show and write this blog. By doing this the “VOICE” promised I would heal, grow and share my light with the world. This is complete.
The “VOICE” was right, always is. I’ve healed many past wounds, grown through the process and now I AM ready to share my light with the world. My True Self- Expression.
I’ve been an avid reader of self-help, personal development and spiritual and inspirational memoirs for over 20 years. I had to write my own, I needed to inspire myself. I’ve spend thousands and thousands of dollars over the last 20 years seeing inspirational speakers, going to workshops or retreats. Now it’s my time to do these type of things as I AM an inspiration for myself.
What I found through this process is True-Self expression is being who you are 24/7 and not sacrificing that for anything. My True-Self Expression comes through being a Dad, my yoga practice, my writing, my work and yes even asking for help when needed.
Finding inner peace doesn’t come in the form of material things, big bank accounts, major accomplishments or being famous. Inner Peace comes through self healing, self- love and self-expression. By having these in place I’ve become a more compassionate, kinder, loving man.
I have had to lean on my relationship with God the whole way, that is where I get my Inspiration. It’s where I get my passion and enthusiasm for life. My faith has carried me through this process and having the inner knowing when my pen hit the paper two years ago abundance for me was starting to come my way.
The writing of this blog is now complete. Thank you for sharing this experience with me. I’m excited to share my story in my book – The Humble Warrior, coming out soon.
Your life is a journey. Your pain and suffering are not a random coincidence; they will lead you to your higher purpose. Listen to your heart, because the resources for you to fulfill your purpose are inside of you. Yes, your treasure lies within you….and God is always with you.
